Lower Blood Pressure

Infrared Sauna FAQ
What do I wear?
To enable infrared to penetrate tissues as deep as possible, we recommend wearing as little as possible. Swimsuits are the perfect options.
How often should I use the sauna?
One session will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. But similar to exercise, the more you do it, the better the results. Recommended use is 3-4 times per week for 30-40 minutes.
When will I start sweating?
Sweat levels differentiate between each individual. Don't be surprised if you don't sweat during the first few sessions. Sweating will increase with regular use. Even if your body is not drenched in sweat, your body is still detoxifying from harmful toxins. Also, be sure to drink plenty of water before your session. If you are dehydrated, you will not sweat as much. If you are hydrated properly and want a sweat boost try our FIT BOOSTER.
